Truth be told, online companies make a lot of money. The beauty of ordering for items and receiving them in the comfort of your home at the click of a button could be appealing to the customer, and profit making to the business as well. However, not every business gives back to the community.


But online exchange platform, OLX, chose to stand out from the crowd when it recently made a charitable donation of N746,000 to the Pacelli School for the Blind. The fund was raised by the OLX Gives Back initiative in partnership with Dan Foster and Olisa Adibua. The two On-Air -Personalities sold items on OLX and proceeds from sale of the items were doubled by OLX and donated to a charity of their choice.

Speaking at the event, the OLX country manager, Lola Masha said “We are the number one classified site in Nigeria and we recognize the importance of supporting our local communities.” Radio personality, Dan Foster said he joined the OLX Gives Back Campaign because it is important for Nigerians to know that items that are no longer needed at home can be traded for cash and used for a good cause.
For  Olisa Adibua “I was able to sell my TV, wrist watches and other stuff to folks who bought them on OLX at a very good deal and I get to support Pacelli where visually impaired children go to school for free”.

Expressing her gratitude towards OLX and the radio personalities for their generous donation, the principal Pacelli School for the Blind, Rev. Sis Agnes Onwudiwe said “We rely on generous donations like these to keep the school going and we are very grateful to OLX for this initiative”.

The OLX Gives Back Campaign began in 2014, with fellow on-air personalities Manny, of Cool FM & Wazobia FM’s Yaw donating to the Modupe Cole Foundation, The Down Syndrome Foundation, Bethesda Home for the Blind and the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy for early cancer
